The fresh-faced 2021 Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickup truck has been revealed.

For the casual observer, the Colorado's biggest change is up front where a new grille gives the truck a fiercer face with looks that fall into line with the latest Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD trucks, which have debuted anew on dealer lots in the last year.

On WT, LT, and Z71 models there are also updated center bars and new front skid plates. WT and LT models get the new Chevy bowtie logo while the Z71 wears a black bowtie badge.

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will officially be unveiled at SEMA later this month but we already know some details. The ZR2 will be the first Colorado model to sport the company's flow-through "Chevrolet" front fascia, and it gets unique standard red tow hooks. It will continue to be equipped with Multimatic DSSV position-sensitive dampers, standard front and rear electronic locking differentials, a two-inch suspension lift, a 3.5-inch wider track, off-road rocker protection, cast iron control arms, Autotrac transfer case, and multiple skid plates.

The Colorado also gets a new available paint job – Sand Dune Metallic, on ZR1 and ZR2 models, and an embossed tailgate featuring the Chevrolet logo.

The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado can be kitted out to tackle tough off-road terrain, is available in a number of special editions, and can come equipped with multiple appearance and equipment packages. It is expected that the 2021 model will follow suite.

The refreshed 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will go on sale in 2020. Pricing for the Wentzville, Missouri-built truck will be announced closer to its on-sale date.
